ELECTRIX is lightning fast

We paid particular attention to speed and performance, because speed is one of the top three most important features for electrical CAD users. A PLC is created in no time at all, terminal management is super easy and the complete documentation of your project is ready up to 10 times faster than in previous versions.

ELECTRIX runs with automation

We believe in automating processes and routine tasks, so engineers and designers can make better use of their valuable time. Schematics can then be generated automatically from these templates (macros) at the push of a button.

The complete generation of schematics can be automated by using product configurators with WSCAD ELECTRIX. Engineering time is reduced from weeks to just a few minutes. Find out how companies like Bruckmann Steuerungstechnik or Caterpillar have implemented this with WSCAD.

ELECTRIX includes Augmented Reality

A unique highlight of the WSCAD ELECTRIX are the two augmented reality apps. Both apps are free of charge in the Apple App Store and on Google Play

Cabinet AR App

With the Cabinet AR app maintenance personnel and service technicians can scan field devices and components from a control cabinet.

Building AR App

We have developed an augmented reality app to help building designers scan buildings in no time. With the Building AR app you can scan entire rooms including doors and windows and save them as a DXF file.

Usability, functionality at a fair price

Usability is our top priority, because 55% of all Electrical CAD users claim that ease of use is by far their most important feature. And although ELECTRIX is easy to use, it provides a very wide range of functions. You can start small and expand the functionality at any time via add-on modules.

Electrical schematics, control cabinets, piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID), fluid power, building automation as well as the entire electrical installation – everything is implemented consistently on one platform. This saves a lot of time when implementing changes and it helps you avoid costly mistakes.

Good software doesn’t have to be expensive: ELECTRIX comes with a very competitive price tag and is usually much more affordable than software from our competitors. And you will find that this advantage also applies to the annual recurring maintenance costs.

Modular, scalable and flexible

Whether you need additional functions or more licenses, the WSCAD solution is modular and scalable. It grows with the increasing demand, without data breaks.

The software license is available for a single user (node ​​locked) or as a multi-user network license (floating). Network licenses offer additional investment protection: you can use the borrow-function to temporarily borrow network licenses. Should you lose your laptop, the license will automatically jump back to the server after the borrowing period expires. The license is not lost and your investment remains protected.

More efficient work

On pages with a large number of elements, you can now navigate the cursor more smoothly. Zooming in or out as well as moving a large number of marked elements is done much more smoothly.

Search function in the Project Explorer - simplifies the search for projects

Search function in the Project Explorer

Do you sometimes feel lost in a flood of projects? The new search function in the Project Explorer helps you find the project you need immediately.

Search function in the Material Explorer - find your articles faster

Search function in the Material Explorer

The days of endless scrolling through the Material Explorer are over. Use our advanced search function to find exactly the material you need in a flash. No matter whether you are looking for a reference code, article number, manufacturer, function text or symbol text.

Grouping of symbols and elements

Your perfect ensemble: grouping symbols and elements

Now simply group symbols and elements to manipulate more complex design elements as a unit. This makes revisions and rearranging a breeze.

Close dialogue and manager window with Enter key

Put an end to click marathons: close windows with the Enter key

Why should closing a dialogue box be a multi-step affair? Just press the Enter key and voilà! Windows and dialogues close at your command. Your workflow becomes a seamless rhythm.

Selective cursor snap

On-demand precision: selective cursor capture

From now on, the cursor only snaps into place when you execute a command. You retain full control and only use the snap-in function when it is useful to you.

Improved context menu

Improved context menu

By right-clicking on a selection of elements, you now get the common context menu directly. You will only see the list of options relevant to your selected elements, without unnecessary ballast.

Structural areas as polygons

Out-of-the-box: structural areas as polygons

Who said that structural areas must only be rectangular? Break the mould with polygons. Your design field becomes more geometrically diverse and allows for a more realistic representation of physical spaces in your project.

Tooltips in the article management

Tooltip for combination elements in article management

Hover over a combined element and see its individual components directly in the tooltip. It is no longer necessary to split or sift through the properties. One look is enough!

Divisible function lists for building automation

Divisible function lists for building automation

With the new vertical division of the function list, you can elegantly distribute the overflow of information over several sub-pages. This way you can accommodate all the important information without having to compromise on readability.

Real-time scaling of P&ID symbols

Size matters: Real-time scaling of P&ID symbols

Often standard symbols do not reflect the actual size of the plant components, especially when it comes to containers of different volumes. With the ability to scale P&ID symbols directly during placement, you create plans that reflect the real size relationship. It’s as if your plan becomes an exact representation of the plant.

Transparent control cabinet 3D view

Maintain minimum distances Thanks to transparent 3D view

With the transparent 3D view, you can now check compliance with minimum distances in the control cabinet more easily.
